The Position

The California Historical Society (CHS) is seeking candidates for a 2-year, term position as Project Manager, for Teaching California, a collaborative grant project funded by the State of California. Teaching California will offer California K-12 teachers and their students an innovative online collection of teaching resources. The Project Manager will, under the guidance of the CHS Director of Library and Collections, manage the full project delivery process, from determining scope to operational plan development to final outcomes.  The incumbent will interface extensively with stakeholders, staff, and collaborative partners to foster beneficial relationships and achieve high quality results.

About Us

The California Historical Society (CHS) is a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire and empower people to make the state’s richly diverse past a meaningful part of their contemporary lives in order to create a more just and informed future. Founded in 1871, CHS maintains a premier collection of original materials documenting the history of California from the Spanish conquest to the present day. The CHS Collection represents the environmental, economic, social, political, and cultural heritage of the entire state, including materials from outside California that contribute to a greater understanding of the state and its people. Beginning with its founding, and especially since establishing its Yerba Buena District headquarters on Mission Street in 1995, CHS has served residents of the Bay Area, the state, and beyond with its research library, exhibitions, publications, and public educational programs that draw on its important and wide-ranging collections of California history.

About Teaching California

Through Teaching California, the California Historical Society in collaboration with its educational partner California History and Social Science Project (CHSSP) of U.C. Davis, will develop dynamic, expansive online curriculum composed of primary and secondary source materials, drawing upon its vast archival resources and those of the libraries across the state and nation. These resources will be carefully curated and tailored to provide K-12 teachers and students with online resources they need to analyze and understand the past. Critically, these materials will embody an interpretation of history that places California at the center of the study of the past by offering local and state examples of national and worldwide histories, highlighting the rich, varied, and impactful contributions of Californians.

The objective of the program is to ensure California’s large historical and archival resources are readily accessible to all K-12 students to foster better understanding of the state’s history, improve student literacy, and promote civic learning and engagement. The initiative creates a sustainable model for instructional material development in history-social science as well as other content areas. Teaching California will offer teachers and their students an innovative online collection of teaching resources, aligned with the new History-Social Science Framework, slated to be available in 2019.
